How to Prepare Your Windows for Winter
Cover Your Windows
One of the easiest and simplest ways you can prepare your windows is by installing window coverings—anything is better than nothing. There is an array of blind and shade offerings out there, and it’s easy to find something that will still flow with your home decor. Window coverings provide somewhat of a barrier, and the closer they are to the window itself, the more insulation you’ll get.
Choose the Treatment That Best Fits Your Needs
Cellular shades prove superior at insulating your windows. They trap air in a way that leaves a layer of still air in between the shade and the window; this results in a thicker insulation without producing too much heat. Considering people live in differing climates, cellular shades come in both a single-cell and double-cell form so you’re able to install what works best for your specific region.
For maximum insulation, layering treatments is the right way to go. Thermal-lined curtains are heavier than average curtains and, in turn, also produce more insulation. They have harmful UV ray-blocking properties as well, which protects the front-facing fabric of the drapery from damage. Thermal curtains can also easily add a touch of sophistication to your living space, merging both style and practicality.
Why Is It So Important to Prep My Windows for Winter?
Taking the right measures to warm up your windows for the winter is a viable way to cut costs and keep your home warm and cozy. Gaps in the window allow drafts to frequently enter, resulting in your warm air going out.
For one, not preparing your windows properly can leave you with an uncomfortably chilly atmosphere inside. There’s nothing quite like a toasty room on a cold day, and drafty windows may not let that happen. Another benefit of window preparation is a cut in energy bills, potentially saving you hundreds of dollars per season. With lower energy bills come higher energy savings, lowering your carbon footprint and ultimately aiding in conserving Earth’s natural resources.
